    33== What is GENI-in-a-Box? ==
    4 GENI-in-a-Box is intended to help you get started with GENI without having to apply for a GENI account.  You can use GENI-in-a-Box to set up and run experiments just as you would with using resources from a real GENI aggregate.  In this case all the resources you use exist within GENI-in-a-Box running on your computer.
